The New York City Chapter of CoreNet Global (Corenet NYC) is pleased to announce that the organization hosted its sold-out 2016 Annual Dinner at The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
CoreNet NYC was joined by over 900 corporate real estate industry leaders on the ship for the association’s most anticipated event of the year, and the chapter’s most elaborate event to date.
This year’s event featured a duet performance between saxophonist, Alex Foster of Saturday Night Live and artist, Tom Reyes of Visible Sound. Foster serenaded dinner guests with jazz music, while Reyes painted three contemporary pieces of artwork to the music that coincided with the music.
The event also featured the first-ever “Design Spotlight Competit
ion,” which showcased four displays of “Disruptive Innovation.”
Arenson, Ted Moudis Associates, NBBJ and Corgan each spent two months preparing a display conceptually defining “Disruptive Innovation” within a 4 ft. sq. space. Each firm displayed its project during the dinner, before the winner, Corgan, was announced.
Corgan’s unique interpretation used only black and white coloring, was contained in an abstract hexagonal structure and included an electronic screen as the backdrop—it was the only design to incorporate an electronic device.
